About Manie

Manie Walker BA, CHRL, CEC, ACC

Manie Walker is a seasoned and impactful certified business and executive coach with a passion to serve as a partner in business, energizing and transforming individuals, teams and organizations toward action and realized potential.

With over three decades of real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, my practice is built on five core values: honesty, integrity, fairness, courage and perseverance. My ensuing and steadfast commitment to these values and to my clients has helped countless businesses increase organizational effectiveness, build meaningful human resources infrastructures, and has encouraged countless leaders to find strength, resilience and unmatched productivity.

My experience spans several sectors: financial services, IT, professional services, not-for-profit, retail, government, insurance, health care, and steel, mining and consumer packaged goods.

I live in Dundas, Ontario with my husband and blended family. I am a Toronto Maple Leaf fan and have been a beginner golfer for years.
